Max Factor Mini Effect Nail Polish in Fantasy Fire

Today I’m bringing you yet another nail polish that is utterly gorgeous. But not the best buy for the price though. I saw it for the first time on this blog and I just had to have it!

It’s part of the Mini Nail Polish line which are these tiny cute polish bottles. I lot of them are gorgeous complex shades including shimmers and duochromes.

Anyway, I’ll get down to business. Fantasy Fire is a layering sheer polish with a MAJOR duochrome shift. It’s a blue-indigo base with shimmer that shifts from orange to green. It’s quite thin and not really meant to be worn on its own. It’ll take way too many coats to get it opaque and with such a tiny bottle (and high price) I’d rather use it over others.

It looks amazing over dark blues, violets, magenta and black. I love wearing this over Nails Inc Belgrave Place (as shown in pictures). It veers more towards green indoors but the orange comes through under more light. I love how the orange shimmer looks over blue. It leaves me misty eyed. Deborah Lippmann’s Ray of Light is similar but it has a more opaque base and contains flecks instead. Urban Decay Toxin is also similar but not a dead on dupe.

The consistency is thin and it falls evenly on the nail. I generally have two coats of the base colour and 2 coats of Fantasy Fire. A topcoat isn’t really needed but it will look better with it as the week goes on. It lasts pretty well for a week. The photos below were clicked on my 4th day of wear, hardly any tipwear.

The bottle is quite tiny with a medium sized brush, easy to work with.

My search for Max Factor Mini Effect Nail Polish in Fantasy Fire has been long and it took me well over a year before I actually grabbed it. Found every single shade in the range but this online. Couldn’t find it on the counters. Finally found it on Nykaa! My life is now complete. Do you also romanticize your purchases (excessively)?

With only 4.3ml product but Rs.305 price, it’s not the most cost effective unfortunately. 4.3ml is just ridiculously little.
